Help [Opinion] The "Nexus S"

The Nexus S. Google and Samsung. Why?

One thing I liked about Google, and their mobile devices, was the relationship with HTC. Google has worked with them for years. All of their developer phones have been made by HTC, and their flagship phone was made by them, too. They launched the first consumer Android device with the G1. They've continued the line with the G2. It just doesn't make sense, to me, why they would go with Samsung. Maybe they prefer some of Samsung's great hardware, like the sAMOLED screen, or the Hummingbird processor. I'm not sure.

Now, just to be clear: I do not hate Samsung.

I do not like the way Samsung's phones look and work. They look like a cheap, shiny, plastic. It doesn't feel finished. I know looks don't mean everything, but, I don't want something ugly. Plain and simple.

Another concern are those capacitive buttons. I've seen other Samsung devices. The lights on those things turn off pretty fast. Not a major concern, but can get annoying.

The lack of a trackball really bothers me. I don't know about you other Nexus One owners, but I love my glowing trackball. I think it's better and more fun than a notification light.

Other than these concerns, I like the phone. But these simple things will constantly bother me. I'm the type of person who doesn't like to switch hardware unless it is better. Hopefully I change my mind at release.

What do you think? Do you think the Nexus S will be a hit? Do you think it looks good or bad? I'd love to hear all opinions.
